A COUPLE could not stop themselves bragging on Facebook about buying their first house, it has emerged.
Although most of their friends are unable to afford a home, Nikki Hollis and Stephen Malley shared a number of images including a close-up of their house keys with the caption ‘The new crib #owning #it’.
Malley said: “We’ve worked really hard, and Nikki was smart enough to have a rich dead aunt. What are we supposed to do – just quietly move in?
“Resisting the urge to boast about property purchase is the greatest challenge facing our generation. Sadly we weren’t strong enough this time – maybe we’ll keep quiet when we buy another larger house with a massive double garage.
“I doubt it though.”
Hollis said: “Having something that many of our peers desperately want makes boasting irresistible. Luckily I have the deeply cynical attitude that everyone else is just as awful as us, which neatly justifies whatever we do.”
Hollis’s mother Laura said: “I’m just sorry I couldn’t help my daughter when she posted a photo of her first candlelit meal in what she referred to as her ‘new casa’. The government should have intervened to stop her.”
